where did the time go?

I know all you moms out there can relate to this. Tomorrow is Tara's 2nd birthday and, as I look through her baby pics I wonder, where did the time go? Even though I spend all of my time with her, have documented all her days (in my heart's memory...or with pictures and words)...I simply cannot believe that these two years have just zipped by! I can remember the first moment I laid eyes on her. Her baby touch and smells are with me now...I can remember the first time I held her...How the world seemed different somehow. How scared (okay...terrified!) I was to be responsible for this new precious and tender. But also how it seemed as if she had always existed in some other time and space...just waiting for me. It all seems like yesterday...really.

(Tara-1st birthday)
As I look back on this journey of motherhood, I realise how much we have all grown a family. Dear sweet Tara ...I wish you a happy heart ... and for you to be true to yourSELF for all of your days.
*Will post a birthday pic tomorrow-so please stop back by!

Tara is sooo darling. I love that cute tiara on her head from her first birthday!!

Enjoy her now. You won't believe it but soon she will be nearly 14 and be into makeup and friends and boys. You won't be the center of her world anymore. That hurts:(

Love to you today, friend!

She is adorable.
It's wonderful how you appreciate the passing of time and embrace every minute. You will always be thankful for it.
And yes it is wonderful how technology lets us share these special, heartfelt moments and the not so easy passages.
